Catalina Morgan 440 - Kachina - $324,000

Kachina is a 2008 Catalina Morgan 440 listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater.

This is a high volume, solid and extremely well equipped cruising yacht. Late model large Catalina's are rare in Australia and to find one in this condition is unique. The 440 is a Deck Saloon offering a beautiful and practical interior with a two double cabin layout with two heads. The aft cabin has easy access to the utility cabin (also accessed from the cockpit) which includes massive storage space and the option to utilise two spare berths in the form of a twin bunk. The galley is to starboard and links the cockpit and the saloon perfectly. There is both a fridge and separate freezer. The raised saloon space is comfortable and capitalises on the large Deck Saloon windows. The saloon table electrically lowers to create and additional double berth or day bed. Opposite the saloon is probably the most comfortable seating we have seen in a yacht of this size with two reclining easy chairs. Of course, there is a dedicated nav and control station. Forward is the owner's cabin with private ensuite. Storage space is abundant.

Kachina has been thoughtfully and constantly upgraded since her current owners purchased her in 2018. Just some of the main items include: new rigging 2021, sails (main, genoa and Code C cruising spinnaker) all new 2020, most electrics replaced (solar panels, chart plotter, AIS, stereo, batteries, HW system, diesel heater, inverter). There is a bow thruster, electric winch in the cockpit, and impressively a leisure furl in-boom furling system makes for incredibly easy short-handed sailing .

The yacht is powered by a 75Hp Yanmar shaft drive last serviced in April. The yacht was anti-fouled in February. A huge amount of recent invoices are available.

Kachina is offered for sale by just her second owners who have had a change in plans. As a result, we are presented with an absolute turnkey opportunity. The owners have significantly prepared the vessel for serious cruising or simply to be a self-sufficient live aboard home. Very seldom do we see a yacht in this condition with so many recent upgrades.
